ADF12c-WebSockets-SlidePresenterDemo by Lucas Jellema

clip_image002

WebLogic 12c (12.1.2) has support for WebSockets. ADF 12c runs on WebLogic 12c. Therefore, we should be able to leverage that WebSockets support in an ADF application. And indeed we can, as this article describes. It will explain the creation of a simple application – the SlidePresenter – that allows users to select an image from a carousel. As soon as they make the selection, all currently connected clients are synchronized, showing the same slide: Read the complete article here.

ADF in Action – slides and demonstration from OUGF 2014 by Lucas Jellema

During this week’s OUGF 2014 Harmony conference in Haltia, Finland I presented on Oracle’s premier application development framework: ADF.
ADF is the strategic application development framework for Oracle, a core element in Fusion Middleware. ADF can be used to create large scale, enterprise applications. It can be used to create entirely license free applications. It can be used to create cloud applications and also applications that can be used from all kinds of mobile devices.

This presentation provides an overview of ADF: what it consists of, what it can be used for, what it is better not used for, what does it take to (learn how to) develop ADF applications is an important question that is addressed. The presentation features several demonstrations of the both the first HelloEmployees application as well as a number of advanced ADF mechanisms.

If you have not recently – or ever at all – seen ADF in action, and application development does take place in your organization, this session is a valuable quick introduction and overview. Get the presentations here.

AMIS Oracle Enterprise Mobility conference review

This article will provide a live account of the three day Enterprise Mobility conference, hosted by AMIS in Nieuwegein, The Netherlands. Oracle ADF Product Managers Frank Nimphius and Chris Muir are the keynote speakers. They are joined by Willem de Pater, Steven Davelaar and Lancy Silveira from Oracle and Luc Bors, Frank Houweling, Paul Swiggers, Aino Andriessen and Lucas Jellema from AMIS. The presentations and demonstration during this conference cover the next step for most enterprises (with ADF or without): introducing enterprise mobility. Many of the themes currently or shortly relevant to any organization will take center stage: multi device UI, mobility, security, agile & automated software engineering, performance & scalability, user experience, web & mobile oriented architecture and cloud. It will discuss and demonstrate Oracle’s vision and the upcoming generation of products.
The audience is composed of about 40 experienced ADF application architects and developers that not just sit back and relax, but share their experiences and ask the tough questions. How well does ADF fit in the mobile world? What is the role of ADF in a future that consists of HTML 5 and mobile? What is the long term evolution of ADF – and the use Oracle itself makes of the framework?
Note: the Twitter hash tag for this event is #amis_m2e (follow us on Twitter: live twitter-feed)
Friday 23rd May
16:30 Aino is still going strong. He is advocating the use of automation in our build, test and deployment processes. To use Maven (with 12c) and Ant (for 11g). To use Hudson or Jenkins to organize frequent, automated build in our development and testing environments and to perhaps look a little bit further (XL Deploy, Bamboo, Go) when it comes to deployment strategies for Acceptance Testing and Production environments.

Improve Your Oracle ADF App Response Time by as Much as 70 Percent by OTN and Amis

Performance needs to be ingrained in your application -- it cannot be added in during the last stages of development. Oracle ADF applications are no exception to this rule. In this video Frank Houweling, senior Java, Oracle ADF, and SOA specialist at AMIS Technologies, discusses how you can optimize the performance of your Oracle ADF Fusion application, diagnose and solve typical performance problems, and build an efficient, responsive, scalable ADF application that circumvents common bad practices.
This video was originally presented as part of the Oracle ACE Track during the Oracle Technology Network Virtual Developer Day event "Oracle ADF Development -- Web, Mobile and Beyond." Watch the video here.

ADF & ADF mobile section: Overview Video published on the ADF Performance Monitor by Frank Houweling

video_pm_overviewA good performance is the key to the success of a web application. Oracle ADF applications are no exception to this rule. ADF performance tuning can be time intensive, costly and quite a challenge when performance issues require developers to delve deep into the inner workings of the ADF framework.

The ADF Performance Monitor is a tool specifically designed for measuring, analyzing, tuning, and checking the performance of Oracle ADF applications. The tool can track and collect crucial (production) performance information of the application’s runtime ADF components that are not standard provided by Oracle. It helps development, QA, and operation teams to detect, analyze and resolve common and less common issues in response times and resource usage of ADF applications. Read the complete article here.

New Puppet 3 Weblogic provisioning module by Edwin Biemond

The last few weeks I was busy re-writing of my puppet WLS module so it fully supports the power of Puppet 3 (thanks for more than 4000 downloads on puppet forge and all the github downloads).
With Puppet 3 we now can use Hiera, Iterations and Lambdas expression. This does not sound like a big change but with Hiera and the new Puppet Language features, I can define big WebLogic Domains without losing maintainability ( Got one customer with 5 Clusters, 25 Managed + JMS servers, more than 100 queues & topics).
With Puppet version 2 and my WLS module you need to have a lot of files (site specific classes) with at least more than 2000 a 5000 lines, here is an example of this. In this ORAWLS module I use the default/minimal approach ( declare once in Hiera) so you won't need to declare the same parameters over and over again. Off course you can still define everything like you did in the WLS module.
When you want to know more about Hiera you can take a look at this documentation page. For the new Puppet 3 language features look at this slideshare presentation.
In this post I will show you the new features and how it works with Hiera. Here you can download or take a look at the new orawls github code, or download it from puppetlabs forge. I Also made a vagrant reference implementation ( which you can use to test it yourself ), this reference will create a 3 node WebLogic 10.3.6.0.6 Domain with 2 Clusters together with some JMS modules and Queues.
The first big change is that the puppet install classes does not contain any site specific code, I have now only 2 classes which I can use everywhere

  • One for the WebLogic Admin server which contain all the possible WebLogic options
  • One for WebLogic nodes which only installs the software, copy domain and configure the nodemanager )

Let's begin with installing the WebLogic software. For this I only need to add this to a class. Read the complete article here.

WebLogic & FMW Provisioning update by Amis

Already a year has passed since I wrote about WebLogic and Fusion Middleware provisioning with Puppet. In this year provisioning got a great boost with the popularity of DevOps and provisioning tools like Puppet, Chef or in combination with  Vagrant & Oracle VirtualBox.

Provisioning without tooling can be hard for companies when they also do their own development or have many applications with its own lifecycle. For example applications can have different database vendors/ versions / types like SQL, NoSQL or Big Data and can run on different Middleware servers like .Net, JBoss or WebLogic with or without OSB & SOA Suite.

Plus with loosely coupled architecture the application probably interacts with a few databases, have a few middleware components and integration with other applications. Combine this with a new trend to have components on premise or in the cloud, you know it can take some time to set this up.

One environment is not enough for the whole application lifecycle, you need to have a development, test and acceptance environment and combine this with Continuous integration and deployment. I personally noticed that projects are heavily delayed cause there is no environment or the environment is not like the production environment.

Provisioning was a hot topic on Oracle Openworld 2013, many OOW sessions mentioned or talked about it and in this article we will talk about what is possible now and what the future will be.

Screen Shot 2013-10-26 at 16.18.25First Oracle feels our pain and is slowing changing WebLogic. In WebLogic 12.1.2 we can already see the first results.
like

  • 1 WebLogic + Coherence jar for all Operating Systems, 32 or 64 architecture and without a JDK
  • 1 jar with WebLogic, Coherence and FMW infrastructure
  • 1 way of installing (OUI) and patching (OPatch)
  • Better WebLogic Maven support, this way we can install WebLogic or create a Domain from Maven. Read the complete article here.

JavaOne 2013: (Key) Notes of a conference – State of the Java platform and all the roadmaps by Amis

Last week’s JavaOne conference provided insights in the roadmap of the Java platform as well as in the current state of things in the Java community. The close relationship between Oracle and IBM concerning Java, the (continuing) lack of such a relationship with Google, the support from Microsoft for Java applications on its Azure cloud and the vibrant developer community – with over 200 different Java User Groups in many countries of the world.

There were no major surprises or stunning announcements. Java EE 7 (release in June) was celebrated, the progress of Java 8 SE explained as well as the progress on Java Embedded and ME. The availability of NetBeans 7.4 RC1 and JDK 8 Early Adopters release as well as the open sourcing of project Avatar probably were the only real news stories. The convergence of JavaFX and Java SE is almost complete; the upcoming alignment of Java SE Embedded and Java ME is the next big consolidation step that will lead to a unified platform where developers can use the same skills, development tools and APIs on EE, SE, SE Embedded and ME development. This means that anything that runs on ME will run on SE (Embedded) and EE – not necessarily the reverse because not all SE APIs are part of the compact profile or the ME environment.

However, the trimming down of the SE libraries and the increased capabilities of devices mean that a pretty rich JVM runs on many devices – such as JavaFX 8 on the Raspberry PI.

The major theme of the conference was Internet of Things. A world of things that are smart and connected, devices like sensors, cameras and equipment from cars, fridges and television sets to printers, security gates and kiosks that all run Java and are all capable of sending data over local network connections or directly over the internet.

The number of devices that has these capabilities is rapidly growing. This means that the number of places where Java programs can help program the behavior of devices is growing too. It also means that the volume of data generated is expanding and that we have to find ways to harvest that data, possibly do a local pre-processing (filter, aggregate) and channel the data to back end systems.

Terms typically used are edge devices (small, simple, publishing data), gateways (receiving data from many devices, collecting and consolidating, pre-processing, sending onwards to back end – typically using real time event processing) and enterprise services – receiving the data-turned-information from the gateways to further consolidate, distribute and act upon.

A cheap device like the Raspberry PI is a perfect way to get started as a Java developer with what embedded (device) programming means and how interaction with physical input and output takes place.

Roadmaps

The over all progress on Java is visualized in this overview: Read the full article here.

ADF 12c: Using WebSockets to implement client to client push (in a scalable manner) by Amis

WebLogic 12c (12.1.2) has support for WebSockets. ADF 12c runs on WebLogic 12c. Therefore, we should be able to leverage that WebSockets support in an ADF application. And indeed we can, as this article describes. It will explain the creation of a simple application - the SlidePresenter - that allows users to select an image from a carousel. As soon as they make the selection, all currently connected clients are synchronized, showing the same slide:

image

The application uses a WebSocket endpoint - an object that acts as the server end for web socket connections. Each browser session connects to the end point and starts a new websocket connection. Whenever a slide is selected, the WebSocket endpoint is informed (on the server side) and broadcasts the slide selection to all connected clients. A brief demo of what this looks like is shown here. Read the full article here.
